The new CC for the IOW is Anthony Roberts who is returning to Scouts after many years. He was a Queens Scout in Epping Forest. Anthony is a Professor of Medicine and retired consultant surgeon although still practises and teaches surgery.

He is actively involved with St John Ambulance and is an RYA keelboat and First Aid Instructor. Recently he was the chief scientist on the British Schools Exploring Society’s expedition to the Andes with 45 young explorers.

Anthony was presented with his certificate of appointment at the 2009 County Conference. May I also extend my sincere thanks to David Mattinson and the Search Group, to all the nominees and especially to the short listed candidates who acquitted themselves so well in the interview process
